Sounds like you've got it hooked up right. Check your connections from the batt to the starter, starter to the lg lug on the alt. Check your grounds, from the battery to a clean, bare metal on the engine block, block to the frame, fenders and fire wall.

I'd use at least an 8 gauge wire from the alt to the starter and a 2 gauge from the starter to the battery and 2 gauge for the ground.
